Movies With Miya: Up Takes Kids on an AIrborne Adventure

Today, Disney-Pixar's latest creation, Up, opens in theaters. The film chronicles the adventures of 78-year-old widower Carl Fredrickson, who ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to his dream destination of Paradise Falls in South America. Unbeknownst to Carl, an incredibly enthusiastic 8-year-old boy named Russell has come along for the ride looking to earn his last Wilderness Explorer badge.

Russell and Carl bond on their journey while befriending creatures, overcoming a villain, and sharing a love of exploration. With amazing animation, witty writing, and a great message, Up will hold an older child's attention. Kids under five will have a hard time following the story line and may be scared by violent scenes. We sat down with our favorite child critic, Miya, to discuss the film.

Q: What was your favorite part of the movie?
A: I liked it when the house lifted up and flew away with all the pretty balloons.

Q: What didn't you like about the movie?
A: I didn't like it when the bad guys hurt and captured the bird.

Q: Did any parts scare you?
A: I was scared when the boy and the old man fought the mean man.

Q: Would you tell your friends to watch it?
A: I would tell my older friends to watch it. But I would tell my school friends that some of it was scary.



Movie buff Miya, 5, has been watching films since she was old enough to follow the images in the Baby Einstein videos. Her favorite flick is the adored blockbuster The Little Mermaid. This cute critic hopes to grace the silver screen some day!
